    Not displaying higher nibble

    I have this one array declared as result[row][col]

    the result[row][col] is obtained from the operation of array1[row][col] XOR (^) array2[row][col] where all the arrays contain hexadecimal numbers.

    After the result[row][col] is obtained, i want to display it in a form of 4x4 matrix. The function i have written is as follow :

    void display(char result[4][4]){
    for(row = 0; row < 4; row ++){
    	for(col = 0; col < 4; col ++){
    	printf(" %x ", result[row][col]);}
    	printf("\n");         }

    What i get from the display is of course, the expected value, except that it will not display 2 nibbles for a value of zero as its higher nibble.

    For e.g :

    the results[row][col] is supposedly to have this value :

    { 0xd6, 0xf3, 0x52, 0x04,
    0x00, 0x23, 0x5a, 0x53,
    0xc1, 0x0f, 0x3f, 0x66,
    0xa2, 0x06, 0x55, 0x7c}

    I am expecting this to be displayed on the screen :

    d6 f3 52 04
    00 23 5a 53
    c1 0f 3f 66
    a2 06 55 7c

    However, the actual display i get from the screen is

    d6 f3 52 4
    0 23 5a 53
    c1 f 3f 66
    a2 6 55 7c

    as you can see, those value with zero as its higher nibble will not be displayed and i dont want that to happens. What i want is to display a fixed 2 nibbles digits regardless its value and i could not find a way to do this. Please helps! Thank you very much!

    Use the code tags - read the intro threads to find out how.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    printf(" %02x ", result[row][col]); should do the trick.
